Primary pleuropulmonary synovial sarcoma, a mesenchymal tumor of lung and pleura, is very rare and highly aggressive condition among the primary lung malignancies. As role of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET-CT) has been established in lung malignancies in terms of staging, restaging, biopsy guidance, and treatment response evaluation, there is also role of FDG PET-contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) to raise suspicion or increase confidence in reporting of sarcomatous lung malignancy by studying characteristics of CECT scan features. We present a case of a 57-year-old female patient having large lung mass, who underwent FDG PET-CT scan and findings raised strong suspicious of noncarcinomatous pattern of lung mass and may have sarcomatous primary lung malignancy which was later proven on histopathological and immunohistochemistry report.
